Trouble accessing files shared over network
I have three machines online via a gateway: Mandrake 10.1, MS XP Pro, and MS XP Home. The problem is that I cannot access Windows shares from the Linux box and vice versa.
I've attempted to change the workgroup of the Linux box [from the default MDKGROUP] to the workgroup of the XP boxes [MACROSCAT] via editing /etc/samba/smb.conf. Although smb.conf retains "workgroup = MACROSCAT", MDKGROUP is all that I see in the Smb4k browser window.
There's a single tree there:
--------print$ . . . . . . . . . . . . . Disk
I have also edited a field called "SMB domain (workgroup)" from the "Settings" menu of the above browser.
I've read the Windows -> Linux file sharing section of the Mandrake 10.0 documentation (section 11.3.5 of a document called _Starter_), but am no smarter as a result it seems.
If someone knows what I am missing and/or knows of an informative resource, please post. Thanks.
